Start Now

Start Now

There is an old saying, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.  The second best time is now.”
 
The recent destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey reminds us of the unexpected.  It’s not a matter of IF a storm will occur, but WHEN a storm will occur.  No one really knows the timing of when.  The best thing we can do is to prepare NOW.

Psalm 118:24 declares, “This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”

We can’t go back twenty years.  We can’t go back twenty days.  We are not even promised the future here on earth.  What we have is today.  This is the day the Lord has made.
 
Life is filled with the unexpected, because as mere humans, we have no idea what tomorrow might bring.  The greatest thing you can do to navigate through the unexpected, is to walk with God today.

Athletic teams know their performance in season is a direct result of their work in the off-season.

The military knows the more you sweat in times of peace the less you bleed in times of war.

The follower of Christ who lives out his faith in public has been praying and seeking God in private.  He is walking with God in the present, enabling him to navigate the future.

If you are reading this today, having never trusted Jesus as Savior, surrender your life to Him today.  Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be rescued.  If you’re a born-again follower of Jesus, keep following Jesus – to this you were called.
         
“For he shall be like a tree planted by rivers of water which bring forth fruit in its season (Psalm 1:3).”
 
Put down your roots in Christ today.
